It could be the water pump but the intake manifold gaskets are another common place for these vehicles to leak coolant. You'll have to fill and pressurize the cooling system to pinpoint the leak before determining how to fix it.

My question I want know the location of a water pump in a golf4 because it is losing coolent.


look at the fan belt and follow the path it runs. you should see the pulley that runs the water pump. Plus it is likely where the coolant is leaking from. the pump is normally closer to the front of the car

I have a 1999 land rover a4.0 i have a coolent leak in the water pump area it dosent look the water pump is leaking


Confirm that the leak is not from the pump.. With the engine cold and off, clean all surfaces which are wet. Make sure the top of the engine is not wet as well. Start engine and look for where the leak is using a flashlight. Be careful of moving parts.
Water pumps have weep holes that leak when the pump bearing is faulty, small holes on the top/bottom of the pump. Also look for leaks from the hose connected to the pump.

I have a 97 grand prix. When it rains water leaks in the front passenger floor board. My a/c doesn't work. When coolent was poured into it it also leaked all in the floor.


your heater core is leaking, that would explain the antifreeze on the passenger floor-as for it leaking there when it rains, there is a piece of molding that sometimes move out of place, it is under the hood on the passenger side, below the vent plate (remove the wiper blade arms, the plate for access)-the ac not working? that could be as simple as low freon, or as bad as multiple leaks, comtaminated system, electrical issues-do you mean the blower motor, because with all that moisture stuff you have going on there I wouldn't be surprised if the blower motor has electrical issues due to the flooding.

The MOST IMPORTANT THING is to fix or bypass the heater core, or you will end up needing an engine if it overheats.

Keeps over heating


Sounds like a head gasket....if there's white smoke fcomming from the tail pipe, that's your issue. Usually a 1500.00 fix

1998 chevy monte carlo leaking coolant


It's a 99% chance of water pump leak or the housing at the timing chain that the water pump sits on.
Water pumps can and do leak one minute then seal themselves.
A cheap fix most use is go to a 7 lb pressure cap on the rad.

Waterpump leaks


Maybe. You could put an additive in, at the radiator cap, but there is no saying it will stop the leak. Are you sure it's the gasket and not the water pump itself. It has abuilt in leak to let you know it's wearing out. Check under the water pump and see if your coolant is coming out of the small hole on the bottom of the pump. If it is change the pump.

Overheating


If the car is overheating and no A/C cold air output. Im sure the radiator fan is faulty. very common problem for overheating condition. If the car is over heating and the radiator fan is not on replace the radiator fan high and low speed it will fix your A/C problemn too. Hope this helps please rate if it does.

Coolent is leaking from overflow and overheating


I will agree with your uncle and say that you should check the water pump. Start the vehicle and look at the water pump. Most water pumps have a "weep hole". If there is coolant coming out of this hole the water pump is not working properly. If not, and if the temperature has been running normally, you may have fixed the problem when you replaced the cap, if the water pump is good and the temp has been running high, then check the thermostat. Hope this helps and good luck.

Just put new spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre. Car now starts and runs, but is blowing out white smoke. Is this blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump put on 3 weeks ago?


these cars have issues with coolent getting into the intake... headgaskets are not one of the issues . check plugs for coolent. upper plastic intake has coolent flow in to chambers if u will, and over time they get micro cracks and brittle ...lower intake manifold gaskets are plastic also. ..cyl. heads are cast iron not alluminum . lower intake manifold is alluminum and upper intake is plastic .. on my lesabre a plastic 90 degree elbow connected to the lower intake manifold to the heater hose housing. the belt tensioner is connected to this housing im refering to. not saying for sure, but if it is this is usually why...
